The Burnt Offering

1And Yahweh called to Moses and spoke to him out of the Tent of Meeting, saying,
  2“Speak to the children of Israel and tell them: When any one of you approaches with an approach offering to Yahweh from the livestock, you may approach with your approach offering from the herd or from the flock.
 

3“If his approach offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he is to approach with a male without blemish. He must approach to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting so that he may be accepted before Yahweh.
  4He is to lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted for him to make atonement for him.
  5He is to kill the bull before Yahweh. Aaron’s sons, the priests, are to approach with the blood and dash the blood against the sides of the altar, which is at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.
  6He is to skin the burnt offering and cut it into pieces.
  7The sons of Aaron the priest will put fire on the altar and lay wood in order on the fire,
  8and Aaron’s sons, the priests, are to arrange the pieces, the head and the fat, on the wood that is on the fire that is on the altar;
  9but its innards and its legs he must first wash with water. The priest will turn all of it into smoke-perfume on the altar for a burnt offering, an offering made by fire; a soothing aroma to Yahweh.
 

10“If his approach offering is from the flock, from the sheep or from the goats for a burnt offering, he is to approach with a male without blemish.
  11He is to kill it on the north side of the altar before Yahweh. Aaron’s sons, the priests, are to dash its blood against the sides of the altar.
  12He is to cut it into its pieces with its head and its fat. The priest will lay them in order on the wood that is on the fire that is on the altar,
  13but the innards and the legs he is to first wash with water. The priest is to approach with all of it, and turn it into smoke-perfume on the altar. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire; a soothing aroma to Yahweh.
 

14“If his approach offering to Yahweh is a burnt offering of birds, then he is to approach with his approach offering of turtledoves or of young pigeons.
  15The priest is to approach with it to the altar and wring off its head and turn it into smoke-perfume on the altar, and its blood is to be drained out on the side of the altar;
  16and he will take away its crop with its feathers and cast it beside the east side of the altar, in the place for the ashes.
  17He will tear it open by its wings, but will not divide it apart. The priest is to burn it on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire; a soothing aroma to Yahweh.
